23 Best Restaurants in Austin for 2022

The decadent French-inspired house, just north of downtown, is both a dinner date night haven and a happening weekend spot for cocktails or brunch with the gang. Sit against sultry velvet walls in the company of fabulously chic antiques, and tuck into delights with a bit of ooh la la (in a good way). We’re talking Duck Confit with soft gnocchi and seasonal mushrooms; whipped cheeses and charcuterie; and if you’re feeling extra fancy, caviar with creme fraiche. Sunday brunch, meanwhile, is all about the seafood tower. And as for drinks, we recommend the Pucker Up, a gin-based citrusy concoction. Honey Moon Spirit Lounge takes advantage of the warm Southern weather, with a breezy patio and extensive selection of beers, ciders, wines, cocktails and more to enjoy it on.
